    Hello First of all hello to everyone and i'm new in this forum. Turbo on my 318d 2003 gave up and i need it replaced.

    Hello, My car doesn't move immediately when I change the gear from P to D. When I put it to D, car stays stationary for about 3 or 4 seconds, then starts to move very very slowly, and gradually it reaches to normal speed. If I press the accelerator, same things happen in less time. It is a...

Rightly or wrongly, when I removed the tape player that sits above the mid unit, I took off the face plate which was connected to the unit by a ribbon. However, when taking this off...
